Artfully designed light gives you control over the look and feel of a room. Dimming, accenting, adjusting the color temperature and even changing colors sets the mood for whatever the day may bring. Choosing the correct lighting and having the ability to control it effortlessly is key to your smart home system. Automating zones and scheduling lighting throughout the day makes for natural transitions from morning to midday to evening. There are many ways that Spectrum Sight & Sound can assist in creating a cohesive lighting design.
See below for creative options we can bring to your space.
Think about how the sun's light looks at sunrise. The brightening yellow glow greets you on the horizon and invigorates you for the day. The bright white light of the afternoon carries you through to the warm orange glow of the setting sun. It's this daily cycle that creates the body's sleeping rhythm. Your brain is your body’s master clock, and lighting works in conjunction with your brain to tell your body to be active or to rest. With the addition of circadian rhythm lighting, moods improve, and alertness and productivity rise.
When you stare into a campfire, what colors do you see within the flame? When it gets hot enough, the core flame appears blue. As the flame moves away from the core and cools, it turns white, then light yellow. At its farthest, it becomes orange. Kelvin is a measurement to describe color temperature on a scale, with 1,000 being the warmest color (red/orange) and 10,000 rating the coolest (blue).
What color light do you need for your home? The answer depends on the room and your personal preference.
Lighting control through your automation system can add a layer to your home's controllable systems. With the touch of a button, you can enter a well-lit home. Press play in your theater room and the lights slowly dim to off, just in time for the movie to start. Set the tone for listening to your HiFi sound system. With the ability to control your lighting remotely, you can set lighting to simulate occupancy, thus creating security for your home. When you implement lighting control, you have the ability to create many different scenes.
LED lighting has truly come a long way, and the ability to control it has reached new levels. With its long lifespan and energy efficiency, LED has quickly become the most desired type of lamp used throughout homes and businesses. Improvements on performance with finely tunable control of colors, hues and dimming puts LED as the most versatile lighting choice available.
Outdoor lighting highlights your home's exterior, landscape and architectural features through wall wash, spotlights, walkway fixtures and sconces. Lighting also provides additional safety by emphasizing walkways and stairs and by providing a layer of security to your home. Installing both white and RGB tunable color lighting offers you a layer of customizability for special events and holidays. Low voltage LED solutions are a great option to illuminate your exterior, and controls are available to tie into your smart home system.
When lighting is designed well, it brings emotion into the space by highlighting the architecture and details of the building or home. It draws attention to the textures and colors on surfaces, and accents artwork with the right angle, colors and intensity. Gone are the days of “four cans and a fan.” Light is focused on selected surfaces, resisting the urge to flood the room with harsh bright light. From recessed choices, to strip LED lighting, to indirect lighting options, the design possibilities are endless.
There are great design benefits to installing a Centralized Lighting System in your home. For a perfect solution in new builds or remodels, lighting wires are run from a centralized location to the fixture’s location in the home or business. This allows lighting control from a single elegant keypad versus a bank of light switches, eliminating unnecessary "wall acne." Sleek, custom-engraved keypads control several lighting loads, creating customized scenes. Our team will work with your electrician to ensure a great experience with your lighting system.
